> Interestingly offshore drilling rigs create an enormous deep water artificial reef and can attract all kinds of large fish. Great book written about it called Helldivers' Rodeo.

Just in case if it's a Meniere's disease, there is a good book on topic "Mind over Meniere's". Very useful stuff.

If your honestly interested in the history of "white trash" I found this book to be very interesting. It's a little dry and academic but taught me a lot about the roots and behavior of American culture of which I was only tangentially aware. The author is an educated historian who self-identifies as white trash:

This book is pretty riveting stuff. Kind of a side by side comparison of Nazis and Communists during those years and makes it clear how much more efficient the Soviets were in contrast to the stereotype of German efficiency.

Like in Poland, where Nazis had a hard time actually killing the people they needed to kill and pretty much just grabbed anybody they could, especially the jews. Soviets collected information first and quietly executed soldiers, officers, intellectuals, and local leaders instead. They learned how to do it from years of experience doing the same domestically. They killed quite a few jews and non-Russians because, despite their ideology of bringing the world together, they were very nationalistic/paranoid when it came to key jobs and power.

The book Treat Your Own Back is great and was the primary guidebook my physical therapist used with me.

There are a lot of really simple and easy exercises you can do twice a day that really help. Also an ice pack on acute pain for ~20 minutes or so while lying flat on my stomach was also a good way to get some temporary relief when nothing else helped.

I switched to sit/stand desk at work which helped a lot, the Varidesk was helpful because it was able to turn my normal desk into a sit/stand area at a price that my company was willing to expense.

Oh and instead of sleeping on my back I would sleep on my side with a pillow between my knees which helped me get much better sleep which was hugely important.

I also took prescription dosages of ibuprofen (~800 mg) during the worst of it. My doctor also recommended magnesium supplements since magnesium can act as a muscle relaxer and sleep aid. I'm not entirely sure how much the magnesium helped but there's something about the feeling that you're doing something that does help you get through the worst of the pain. Obviously consult with a doctor before taking medication, but this is what I did.

All that said working with a good physical therapist for a few months and keeping a log of my exercises and pain levels and generally being very active in combating the injury was what got me through it.

Likely along the lines of “oh lighten up, I’m just one person it doesn’t really matter if I do it.”

They’ve literally never reached the level of consideration that children’s books teach: https://www.amazon.com/What-If-Everybody-Did-That/dp/0761456864/ref=nodl_

Read Traffic. It actually corroborates what /u/alexmg2420 says. Assuming, of course, that the receiving lane acts civil and lets traffic alternate in.

If you're asking that kind of question you're too stupid to understand the answer but if you wanna try to understand, read these books

well now you have met me and also....


the only cage your dog should ever be inside is one where there is no front door attached to it, so the dog can come and go freely. Locking dogs inside a cage is abuse. Just don't get a dog.

Glad someone said this! I read proficient motorcycling when I started riding, and these stats really stuck out to me. Another thing was how there is a steady drop-off in accidents as a rider becomes more experienced with time, and then there is a sharp rise around the 2-year mark. Essentially, riders become complacent.

Also, in said multi-vehicle accidents, most of the time it's a car turning across an intersection that doesn't notice the bike coming.

Ride safe!

Edit: Also, I can't believe someone downvoted you :/

NY, Conn, Mass, and NJ are infested with low low overheads, engineered specifically, in accurate historical terms, with no doubt or theory, for roads to not fit buses. All the original NE ''parkways'' were to serve the nice people with their own cars ways to get in and out of bucolic non urban splendor. They literally openly made sure buses filled with undesirable city negros could not follow.
The taconic. The Saw Mill. The Merritt. The Palisades. The cough cough ROBERT MOSES parkway, the Sunken Meadow, The Grand Central, the Northern State, the Southern state, The Bethpage., the Loop parkway,
All ''parkways'' were carefully planned to ensure that no buses followed the ''nice people'' to the parks. There's a whole book about it, that is probably the book with the highest critical praise of any 20th century non-fiction book.

''Argument Without End

That Moses was highhanded, racist and contemptuous of the poor draws no argument even from the most ardent revisionists. But his grand vision and iron will, they say, seeded New York with highways, parks, swimming pools and cultural halls, from the Belt Parkway to Lincoln Center, and thus allowed the modern city to flower.'' http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/06/nyregion/thecity/06hist.html

I don't know what state this video took place but as a gun owner it is the responsibility of the gun owner to know gun laws for whatever state they carry them. When I bought my first gun I also bought a book like: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1889632295/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdb_ncxbzbNAHES06

In this book it is very clear that you cannot carry a gun in a threatening manner or in a manner that can be perceived as threatening. The guy in the video is wearing a mask in body armor while brandishing a rifle and walking into a police station. I would almost guarantee that everyone there felt threatened. I don't carry my firearms across state lines so I don't read up on other state's laws but if I did I'm getting a book for that state and studying before I go. I would guess that any state with open carry laws are going to have a similar law dealing with brandishing and threat perception.

Had he walked in there in plain clothes with a holstered sidearm with his hands no where near it, he probably would have been fine. At most he may be asked to take it to his car and come back.

These books aren't terribly expensive. I'd recommend getting one for your state just so you are aware even if you don't plan on owning a gun.
